The ultimate beach accessory ~ cute summer nail-art

If you’re going to be sporting a swimsuit or bikini at the beach or the swimming pool this summer, really the only accessories you’ll be wearing are your nails! Okay, people might take a look at your towel or beach-bag, and you’ll probably pop on your flip-flops on the way to the water, but in terms of “wearing” something to go with your swimwear while you’re in the pool, you can rely on your nails to ‘make a splash’ haha!

I’ve gone for a matching manicure and pedicure to compliment my pool-side attire and have used some super-cute nautical nail art transfers to complete the coastal look! Using nail-art transfers is actually easier than you might think – they are as simple to use as children’s ‘tattoo’ transfers that used to come in bubble-gum packets when I was a child! Simply choose the right size for your nail, cut out the transfer and soak it in warm water for 30-60 seconds. The transfer floats away from the backing paper and then it’s just a case of carefully applying the design to your previously polished nail and adding a generous coating of clear top-coat to seal the decal onto your nail. I love this cute anchor design and feel a bit like pop-eye! I’m definitely ready for my seaside adventures anyway!

I was lucky enough to receive this fabulous O.P.I nail kit and transfers from YRnails.com when Panache sent me the ‘Veronica’ swimsuit from their new swimwear collection. I loved the pattern and colour of this ‘Veronica’ swimsuit when I saw it online and after I tried it on I couldn’t believe the difference between this swimming costume and all my old ones – this was so comfortable even though it was a ‘shapewear’ piece, and it even had underwired cups beneath the swimsuit, so it was the perfect fit for me! I will never go back to standard-sized swimwear and I’ve already bought another tankini from the Panache range for my summer holiday and can’t wait for it to arrive! I would definitely recommend that you give proper cup-sized swimwear a try, especially if you’ve not worn it before, because it makes such a difference to the comfort and style of a piece of swimwear.
